More than a few readers sent me notes asking about the availability of the code that I mentioned in last week's Enterprise Hacks feature. I wrote two pieces in that article, the first one regarding timezone settings for thin clients, and the second on using Perl, PHP, and MySQL to map Windows shares and permissions across an enterprise network. The code for the first is easy, since I posted the code back on my blog back in 2003.
The share mapping code will be trickier. For one, it's fairly involved, including Win32 and Linux-based perl scripts, PHP scripts, and a database schema. Also, I'll have to ensure that the code is distributable. If I can get all these pieces together for that app, I'll post it here, but be forewarned -- it was written for one specific purpose, and for one specific network. It should be easily portable to other networks, but it'll have to be screened for security information and probably dressed up a bit. Stay tuned -- I can't promise anything, but I'll try.
